A ladder for a bushel.

When you are fully formed, your plans and actions are reliant on what you want out of life. My choice is to be a ladder for a bushel, and a lantern to many more I have a multitude depending on me and expectations will never diminish. If I fail, many will flounder; struggle to recover….

And the Night woke.

And the Night woke while the day raced to dawn: Man is awake while the night is asleep all creatures must harvest and recover lost energy. Man is awake due to the beauty of the silence of night. Man is awake to earn the wisdom distilled by the hush of the night. The beauty and…

THE BLESSINGS OF FAILURE

Have you ever wanted something so much that you didn’t even think about any other possibility? Your whole attention focused on the objective; with a relatively poor consideration for the journey to goal attainment. You want something so much that you feel like the world would end if you do not achieve that aim. Well,…

NOW THAT WE ARE IN CRISIS, WHAT GOOD CAN WE GAIN FROM IT?

The world is like the fruit paw paw; sweet, nutritious and delicate. Unfortunately, sweetness is not an attribute of the paw paw leaf. Suffice it to say that the paw paw tree is a crisis plant oozing with bitter sweet experiences. The world today is no different from the paw paw tree as it is…

WHO WE ARE; WHAT WE WANT.

There is without doubt so much on our minds. Cumulatively, they are breaking our mental scale. So let’s ignore all of them and concentrate on only one. I have chosen this because I believe by sharing; I will mostly likely be easing your mind too considering the fact that it is an old challenge crying…

A Sinking Ship

Nigeria reminds me so much about James Cameron’s 1998 movie “Titanic” with the mixture of fortunes and of course the hobnobs choice passengers had. She can indeed be likened to a ship which set sail some fifty five (55) nautical miles from her present location to a destination that is the dream of all passengers….

The problem with the cabal – Part 2

During the run-up to the 2012 Republican primaries in the United States, Rick Perry described a group of businessmen as ‘vulture capitalists’. His choice of words is quite apt. How else can you describe companies whose philosophy is purely about the bottom-line? How best can you describe companies that see people as mere tools to…

The problem with the cabal – Part 1

Unemployment in our country is at an all-time high and, as with any society, the associated danger confronting us is that a lack of jobs tends to come with a negative multiplier effect, often resulting in a state of insecurity. The undeniable fact is that idle minds become factories for nefarious acts. Apparently, that is…
